Arizona is a major hotspot for drug activity in America. This is mostly due to its location as an access point from Mexico to the rest of the US. There is a 75-mile stretch of almost totally unprotected Mexican border that includes the Tohono O’odham Reservation. This is frequently used for drug trafficking by Mexican cartels. According to the DEA the Mexican Sinaloa cartel was the main drug trafficking organization moving drugs into Arizona. Local drug distribution is performed by the Hells Angels and Mexican Mafia gangs. The large amounts of drugs moving through the state of Arizona there causes a wide variety of drugs to be available on the street.
According to the National Institutes of Health, opioids were involved in almost 70% of overdose death in Arizona in 2018. The drug problem in Arizona includes legitimate and counterfeit drugs. In Maricopa County in 2017 there were 32 overdose deaths that were a result of people taking counterfeit oxycodone pills. These pills contained fentanyl and the painkiller dipyrone. Dipyrone has been banned in the US since 1977 but is still widely available in Mexico. The problem is so severe that Arizona has been designated as a "high-intensity drug trafficking area" by the US government. There is still hope for recovery if someone is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction.
There has been improvement in recent years, but more work is needed. If you or a loved one is struggling with alcohol or drug use then entering an Arizona detox center is often the first step toward changing your life. Recovery from substance abuse is not an overnight matter. Once a detox program is complete it is highly recommended to seek further care at a treatment center. Getting help from addiction treatment services can make a huge difference to someone's recovery.
When looking for detox and rehab centers it is important to know what questions to ask. Some detox programs will focus on particular substances. There are opioid detox centers and drug rehab centers. Certain prescription drugs and alcohol may require a medical detox to safely go through the process. Once you have found an appropriate program for yourself or a loved one it may be wise to begin looking for aftercare options. Detox is very important but it is also just the first step on the journey of recovery from drug addiction.
